Hampton Roads Oyster Gardening Seminars

New Gardeners

New gardener seminars have finished for 2023. Check back in March/April for our 2014 schedule. To be notified when registration opens, please join our email list.

At the event, you will pick up your spat-on-shell (baby oysters set on recycled shells), two 18" x 9" cages, as well as other supplies needed to grow them. We require a $35 fee for this kit to offset program costs.

NEW GARDENERS: Please read our New Gardeners web page before you register for a seminar.

CBF is proud to partner with the Elizabeth River Project, Friends of the Rappahannock, Virginia Institute of Marine Science, Portsmouth Parks and Recreation, and The Tides Inn to help expand our oyster gardening program.
